Our Rooms

Houses

A stay in Miklosvar is like being transported into a Tolstoy novel having come to visit friends in the country.

Most houses date back to the 1800’s, although some of them are much older, as indicated by the presence of medieval shooting embrasures. The buildings have been carefully restored in order to preserve their original Transylvanian charm and character. The guesthouses are situated within spacious gardens, some with storks nesting on nearby rooftops.

The houses are beautifully furnished with antiques in the Transylvanian Szekler and Saxon styles. To ensure that our guests have a warm and comfortable stay, we have enhanced the original heating system of wood stoves with central heating.  The bathrooms are well equipped and decorated with taste.  A sauna and a billiard room are also available at the lower houses. Children are very welcome and the guesthouses are suitable for all ages, although there might always be few steps to mind.

Our remote village has little infrastructure, therefore we cannot (and do not wish to) claim technical perfection.  There may be an occasional electricity failure; however, these are normally brief and rarely affect the enjoyment of our guests.  The village streets remain unpaved and pot-holed, so can become dusty in the sun and muddy after the rain.  There can be no denying the rustic charm and original Transylvanian character of the village, which offers an opportunity to step back in time.

Bedrooms

The guestrooms are furnished exclusively with antique Transylvanian furniture, including most of the textiles.  All rooms have double / twin beds with woollen and duvet covers. In order to create an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, the rooms do not have television or radio; instead, you will find plenty of interesting books on the shelves.  Each room has an electric kettle, with tea and coffee provided.

Bathrooms

The bathrooms respect western standards of comfort (with hairdryers and toiletries), some with bathtubs, others with showers, and have a beauty and charm of their own.  All bathrooms are private, most are en-suite (although the old Transylvanian village cottages were conceived without bathrooms).

Common areas

There are plenty of areas where guests can meet, read or play games and also have their meals. Drawing- and dining rooms with large fireplaces are to be found at the main house at Miklósvár. There are arbours with benches and tables in all gardens, as well as comfortable deck-chairs with small tables. Miklósvár also has a billiard room within the lower houses, and a sauna. Not to speak of the Stone Pub and the Transylvanian Renaissance style Manor and its park that are open for access.

The wine cellar

At Miklósvár the wine cellar, with its massive oak beams, stoves and central fireplace, dates from the 17th century. Meals are eaten by candlelight.  Guests dine together in a scene reminiscent of a page from a 19th century novel.
